2018 Style Predictions

This year will be about using what you have. Taking pieces you love and using them in new ways. So many of us are so blessed, this year is about cherishing those things and finding ways of giving back to our communities. As I look through ideas for up-and-coming style I am reminded of my grandmother and her elegance. She was the art director of City and Country Home magazine at a time when not that many women had careers. She was the epitome of style and went to New York for inspiration every year. She loved colour and art and texture and combining different materials in fabulous ways. If there was something she loved she used it, even if it wasn’t the “it” thing of the season. This year, find your inner style goddess and decorate your space with what you love and what makes you happy.
